"A library is never complete. That’s the joy of it. We are always seeking one more book to add to our collection."

Hello dear readers,
after quite a long time I am here again with another book haul. In this post I am going to show you all of the books that I've acquired since March. As you may know I celebrated my birthday at the end of the March, so most of the books were actually given to me as presents or were bought from my birthday money. I have quite a few pretty amazing books here and I am extremely excited to read them all hopefully soon. I especially adore the new illustrated edition of Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, which probably my favourite book of his. But without further ado, let's get started...

  • Rilke - This is a collection of poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke. It's published by Everyman's Library Pocket Poets. I am in love with the delicate design of these editions and I would like to collect more of them in the future. Their spines look incredibly beautiful when shelved together. These little poetry books are also really comfortable to hold during reading. Plus they are compeling me to read poetry a little bit more, which is just great...
  • Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier - I read this book in Czech translation at the end of the summer last year, but I have to say that I didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to in my native language. So I bought it in English in hope of enjoying it more in an original language...
  • The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge - This book was very popular in The Notting Hill Bookshop when I was working there. And I wanted to read it ever since then, so I am glad I finally added it to my collection. Especially in this gorgeous edition with illustartions by Chris Riddell. Hopefully I can soon find time to sit down and devour it...
  • Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman - I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman as an author and as I said Neverwhere is my all time favourite book by him. So of course, I absolutely could not pass this amazing new edition of it when in bookshop. I simply can't wait to re-read the story...
  • Pride & Prejudice and Persuasion by Jane Austen - Both of these books were given to me by my parents. And I absolutely love their intricated design. They are so lovely and feel great in my hands. I especially adore the copy of Persuasion that has an adorable portrait of Jane Austen on the back flap, as you can see in the picture down below. Doesn't she look amazingly cute...?
  • Caraval by Stephanie Garber - This was kind of an impulsive buy, for everybody seem to talk about this book at the moment. And since I've heard some really great things about it, I am really excited to read it...
  • Beauty and The Beast and Other Classic Fairy Tales - This book was a present to myself because why not. I love fairy tales, and so this beautifully bound book surely couldn't be missing in my home library...
  • The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo - In the my February book haul I mentioned Six of Crows and how I wanted to read The Grisha trilogy first. So I finally bought it to be able to read the books in a chronological order...
